The Best Rim For Your Pineapple Margarita Isn't Salt
Pineapple margaritas are a refreshing and delicious cocktail perfect for summertime sipping, and they’re easy to make yourself with fresh pineapple juice. No margarita is complete without a rim on the glass, but a pineapple margarita isn’t best served with the traditional salt rim — try this sweet addition instead.
Sugar is a classic choice for lining glasses, as it both adds sweetness and gives the rim a crisp and contrasting texture. However, adding chili powder to the sugar gives your pineapple marg an even better spicy kick, as the heat and smokiness contrasts perfectly with the sweetness of the pineapple and sugar.
To make the chili sugar rim, simply mix equal parts sugar and chili powder on a plate, adjusting the chili powder to your liking. Then, run a lime wedge around the rim of your margarita glass and dip it into the chili sugar mixture, and you’re ready to fill the glass and enjoy your sweet and spicy pineapple margarita.
